Here is a 45 minute video about Andrew Wiles discovering a proof to Fermat’s Last Theorem. And here is Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem, a book that details the discovery even further.

      Yes, I was a math major at LSU, and though I’ve pretty much forgotten everything I learned, I’m still interested in it. I can still follow most of what I read in it. The video is great even if you have no idea what they are talking about, though.
